Sex Offender Registration
Conviction on a sex offense in Georgia will result in sex offender registration, which may last for a lifetime. Depending on what classification you receive from the Sex Offender Registration Review Board in Atlanta, your freedoms and opportunities will be limited. Your probation officer and other law enforcement officials will be allowed to make intrusions on your privacy, monitor your whereabouts and keep records of your employment, residence, educational enrollment and other activities. All of these aspects of your life will also be restricted.
Typically, being removed from the sex offender registry requires that you complete your sentence, parole, probation and supervision all in compliance with registration standards and that you have no other criminal convictions during that time. However, low-level offenders are allowed to petition for removal from the registry immediately after their sentence is completed.
